What motherboard will be the most compliant for the long haul of upgrading in the future?

I need a motherboard that will give me the ability to upgrade for years to come. I don't want to buy a new computer for at least 5-8 years, but want to stay up to date as possible with mostly multimedia. What key features should I be looking at, and what recommendations would you offer me?

That's a bit difficult to predict since technology moves so fast, and things get phased out quickly

Obviously, you'd want a high end board, that supports 24 GB of RAM, and the upcoming USB 3.0

I'd suggest a Core i7 1366 socket board since it supports the most powerful processors available now, and it will also support the Core i9s coming out this year sometime, unlike the 1156 socket Core i7s.
